stay out of payday loan debt

How to use a budget and stay out of payday loan debt!

How to use a budget and stay out of payday loan debt. When I was young my father would tell me “live within your means”. I never really understood that concept because money always burned a hole in my pockets. I had no idea how and or why I should save money and I had no conception of what it cost to live each month and what the total was… or what it could be each year. Let me explain below…

When I would ask my friends how do you make a budget they would tell me write down all your bills and write down all your income and and subtract your bills from your income. If you had something left over you were doing okay and if you didn’t have any leftover you’d need to tighten up. I tried to do that but I found that at the end of the month, even if I adhered completely to my budget I was still in the red… Then I had an idea I still use today. Your income may be a static number but monthly debt is fluid.

There are bills, there are emergencies. The cost of food always varies. The electric bill goes up and down and I could go on. This is what you need to do to figure out a monthly budget. Print out the statement from the last 12 months of your banking. Go over it item-by-item. Every bill that you paid whether it be recurring or a one-time bill needs to be written down. Do that for one full years time. Then, add up all the numbers and subtract them from your income. That’s a true budget. You’ll see all your bills. Doctor’s bills, veterinarian bills. Cost of shopping. Cost of water. Pet insurance if you have any. All of a sudden you see where the money has been going. Include the cost of entertainment because going to the movies and having some sushi afterwards is something I would call semi reoccurring debt. With the debit cards that we use today and the checks that we write, your actual statements are the best barometer of what it costs you to live. If you are in the black, good for you!

Start saving money for an emergency fund. Nobody knows when an emergency can happen. If you are the red start cutting back on whatever you need to cut back on. In another blog post there’s an article written about stupid debt. Read it. We all can relate. Here’s the thing. There is a quick fix for these monthly shortages and many people take them. They’re called payday loans. Most of our clients have them. They are ridiculously high interest advance loans that cost an arm and a leg to pay back at interest rates that could top off at 700%. At that point in time many of the people we work with go into a payday loan consolidation program. You don’t want to be the person that takes out that 700% short term loan. That short-term loan will always become long-term. There are very few people that can’t afford that kind of interest on top of their monthly bills.if you ever find yourself in that situation you will need a payday loan debt consolidation to pull your life back together.

Our company has been in business 23 years. In most cases if you make that mistake our consolidation program can get you out of debt in a shorter period of time. Our years of experience working with your creditors works in your favor. In most cases your creditors will reduce your interest rates for us down to 0%.

payday loan companies

Are payday loan companies a new version of organized crime?

Are payday loan companies a new version of the mob? I’ll let you, the reader decide after digesting this post. If you follow this blog you know that 12 million Americans will take a payday loan this year. This is a fact. The question is how are they being asked to pay it back? In a perfect world you would pay your payday loan back according to all the terms including the time frame that was mutually agreed upon by you and the creditor. Unfortunately for the consumer, the enormous interest rate charged by these companies makes it almost impossible to repay the loan that you’ve taken the way it’s supposed to be paid back. What do you do when you don’t have the money to pay back your loan?

Most people call the creditor and try to make arrangements. There are still people that don’t call the creditor and try to dodge the debt. Unfortunately that’s not possible. We have been told by many borrowers that payday loan companies are like pit bulls when it comes to Payday Loan collection. That’s true of many companies in many industries. They want their money back. From what we’ve been told, there are parts of rural America where laws seem to mean nothing. On September 20th 1977, then President Jimmy Carter signed the fair debt collection act into law. This law was written to protect consumers from unscrupulous collectors. Unfortunately, All creditors do not abide by this Federal Law.

Sources tell us that there are many payday loan companies in rural America still knocking on people’s doors asking for money. That there are still people calling and threatening to put borrowers in jail for not paying their loans back on time… There are creditors in the payday loan business that are threatening to take benefits like Social Security from debtors, garnishing these Federal benefits and putting these people in dire Financial circumstances. People need to know what this law is and how it protects them https://ballotpedia.org/Fair_Debt_Collection_Practices_Act

The bottom line is this. You can’t be threatened with many of the things that you are being threatened with. Click on the link above and read the law. Strong-armed mob techniques that went out of style in the 1950s and the 1960s cannot be brought back to collect on payday loans that are delinquent because of the exorbitant interest rates being charged. When you’re in this situation payday loan consolidation can help.

eliminate payday loans

How to stay out of stupid debt and consequently eliminate the need for payday loans (part 2)

In my last post I detailed a couple of the things that I’ve seen over the years take people down both physically and financially. These things are unnecessary and a total waste of money. Let’s go over a couple more things that cost you way too much and the first one is a necessity of life…

Did you know or should I say do you know what the manufacturer of your automobile recommends that you use when you gas up your car? I myself didn’t know the answer to that question until 2 years ago. I finally asked. I bought an SUV and it came with either a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine or a V6. I chose the V6. I also thought that because it is a V6 that I needed to put 93 octane gasoline in the car. Bigger engine better gas,? Right? I was wrong. The average prices for gas in Florida, the state that I live in is $2.36 for regular and $3.13 for high test. That’s a $0.77 per gallon difference. Doesn’t seem like much does it? If you drive 20000 miles a year it is. If you average 20 miles a gallon you are buying 1000 gallons of gas a year. That’s almost $800. More than you should be spending if you’re using the wrong gas. Now let’s take that back to my post from the other day. Let’s add that to the $7,200 that we came up with there. The total is now $8,000 a year that we’re totally wasting on things that are that are non essential, AND definitely essential too. But there’s more. Let’s go shopping!

Did you know that? Well I don’t have I did you know that answer right now but I do want to mention this one last thing that most people really don’t relate to but we all do it. We buy junk. Yes we walk into a grocery store and many times we buy junk. So we buy that 12 pack of Coke or maybe two. Perhaps we buy a case of beer. Chips and dips. Candy. Little boxes of fruit punch for the kids. Maybe we pick up The Enquirer at the checkout. This is math I can’t do for you because I don’t know how you shop. What I do know is these are the things that get you into debt. And once again we’re talking about non essentials here. Not to be redundant but shopping like that along with little things like using the wrong gasoline for your car or going to Starbucks, or smoking costs a whole lot of cash. I will reiterate that if you have to borrow money to buy these items you probably need to reassess the things you buy. If these bad habits have gotten you into debt consider debt consolidation for your credit cards or payday loan debt consolidation for your payday loans. Either way you go, a good payday loan consolidation company can reduce your interest rates down to 0%. That’s whether you have payday loan debt or credit card debt. Payday loan consolidation and credit card consolidation are proven commodities and they work.

eliminate payday loans

How to stay out of stupid debt and consequently eliminate the need for payday loans (part 1)

I’m going to start this article by saying that I’m no preacher. I’m just a guy who over the years has seen many people go deeply into debt. 20 to 25 years ago it was credit card debt. Today, more and more people are going the payday loan route. Invariably they end up deep in debt and end up consolidating those loans. You’ve heard it before. Let me be the last person you hear this from. Let’s do this as a did you know:

Did you know that an average pack of cigarettes in the United States today costs $6.28.A pack a day habit sets you back $188 per month or $2,292 per year. A two-pack-a-day habit would set you back $376 a month or $4,584 a year? Did you know that? I’m an ex-smoker, and I haven’t smoked in over 25 years.I’m grateful that I quit for my health, and that I quit because today, I couldn’t afford to smoke cigarettes. None of us can afford to smoke cigarettes. They’re too expensive and more importantly than that they make you sick. They’re absolutely a cause of cancer and heart disease which is definitely not good for you. Short-term, if you are a two-pack-a-day smoker you will pay $376 a month to smoke. Does that sound like an electric bill, a water bill and a car payment all rolled up into one? Where do people go to get the money to pay their bills when they’re wasting almost $400 a month on a deadly habit. Payday loan lenders prey on people who smoke. I don’t mean that literally, but when we waste money on non essentials we open ourselves up to payday debt and all other types of debt which eventually will require either a payday loan consolidation, a credit card consolidation or a bankruptcy.

Did you know that a large coffee in Starbucks can cost over $5. Add in a $5 piece of pound cake and that’s $8 a day x 7. That equals $56……times 4 and you’re paying $224 a month. Now let’s take a step back. If we’re paying $376 a month for cigarettes and $224 a month for our morning coffee what does that cost us? Rhetorical question because the answer is easy and as plain as day.$600 a month for absolutely nothing. I know that the store brand of coffee costs less than fifty cents per K-Cup and a can of whipped cream probably costs $4. I think you can see where I’m going with this. If you are a smoker and enjoy your coffee on the road every morning you have a $600 a month habit, or $7,200 a year. That’s a lot of money that pays a lot of bills. If we spend $7,200 a year on non essential and absolutely dangerous items we could find ourselves in debt.

In the beginning of this post I said I’m not a preacher.That’s the last thing that people who know me would accuse me of. What I am is somebody who’s done all the things that people do today to waste money. I took out loans back in the old days to pay my bills and I complained to the people that I worked for that they weren’t paying me enough and I couldn’t afford to live. I buried my credit cards and finally ended up with a debt consolidation company to get out of debt quickly, or at least more quickly that I could have done myself. It seems that today, the quick fix is payday loans. Payday loans are very dangerous too. With interest rate that top off at 700% APR, they can financially destroy you and your family. Many people with payday loan debt finally get smart and turn to Payday loan debt consolidation. Payday loan debt consolidation can reduce interest rates down to 0%. My belief is we get to a certain point in life where we have to rebuke the things that are not good for us and remove the poisons from our bodies and our financial lives. Take this seriously. I speak from experience.
